BELFAST – In a seamless partnership of values, The Law Office of Lee Woodward has joined forces with longtime
colleagues Attorneys Christopher MacLean, Pamela Terry, Sarah Gilbert, Katherine Gibson, Mark Coursey and
Laura Shaw of Camden Law LLP.

Continuing the historic pattern of growth that most recently produced the merger of Elliott, MacLean, Gilbert & Coursey, LLP with McKittrick & Warren, P.A. in 2017, Camden Law has added two new attorneys and one new
location to its increasing array of legal services for the community.

Still located at 56 Main St., The Law Office of Lee Woodward, now a satellite office of Camden Law LLP, offers the same comfort and small town feel fostered over the decades by Attorney Woodward while also offering the benefits provided by the infrastructure of a larger firm.

“Over the past 38 years I have observed a sharp decline in the number of full time practicing attorneys in the
Belfast area,” said Lee. “I believe the arrival of Camden Law will be very positive in meeting the legal needs of the community, considering the wide range of legal services they provide.”

Recently honored as Citizen of the Year by the Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce, Attorney Woodward has spent the last thirty-plus years building a strong relationship with both his clients and his community. A local legend for his quick wit, warm demeanor, and wise guidance, Attorney Woodward has thoroughly enjoyed practicing in his hometown with an open door for anyone in need of his counsel.

Attorney Woodward is now beginning to plan for his next great adventure. “Having practiced for over 38 years, I have come to the realization that I owe it to my clients to develop a succession plan where their legal needs will be professionally met for decades to come,” he said. “I have every intention of practicing law on a full time basis for at least the next seven years, but in the meantime, my merger with Camden Law will ensure that the legal needs of my clients will continue to be met well after my departure.”

Joining Lee Woodward Jr. in the satellite location is Camden Law’s most recently acquired attorney, Haley Hall. An
experienced, compassionate and imaginative problem solver, Attorney Hall offers well-rounded representation to her clients in a variety of matters including landlord/tenant disputes, Guardian ad litem work, real estate transactions and litigation, probate and estate administration issues, family law, misdemeanor criminal proceedings, corporate law  and more. An excellent fit for Lee’s office, Haley shares a reputation for being well- loved by clients, judges and community members alike for her empathetic and goal-oriented approach to legal problems. She also brings Camden Law’s history of excellence in litigation to Waldo County.
